Crockpot Stoneware Pot Peeling Inside? Should I Still Use It?

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created December 08, 2011 at 1:41 AM

So, I was just preparing to make some bone broth when I recalled that my crockpot was peeling in certain places on the inside, kinda like when teflon pans start peeling after awhile. I wasn't aware this could happen to a crockpot and I know I would never wanna cook with a peeled teflon pan, or cook with teflon at all! So, I'm wondering if this is okay and if anyone has ever encountered this issue. How could I have prevented this? I've only been using my crockpot more for about 3 months to make bone broths. Should I still use it? I dunno if I wanna risk it, unless you guys inform me it's okay to do so!

After seeing this for a couple of days, can we have a truce called between Kewpie and Scrubjay? This dispute is really not all that productive for this site.

I never attacked you. You spelled a foreign word incorrectly and I tried to be helpful by sharing the correct spelling and explaining why it was commonly misspelled. I'm so sorry I embarrassed you; that was never my intention.

Gah, I missed that earlier thread - my apologies. I'd delete my idiotic comment above (in light of the previous thread), but then you'd look like a nutbar for talking to me about (apparently) nothing. Oopsie :(

If any of you are thinking, WTF?: This Kewpie person attacked a comment I made on another post because I used the term "Wa-lah" for fun instead of "voila". My little nieces say wa-lah/ wah-lah and it's hilarious. But the grammar police cannot tolerate it, apparently. Stickupthearsegrammar: it's sooo paleo. And in the scheme of things, the MOST IMPORTANT THING EVER. Right.

Si, Senor Cowgill/ Chargrill! Wa-lah; Wah-lah! Voila! IOW, POOF, or, dude, it's magic! Variations on the "wa-lah" and "wah-lah" are indicative of how close to nap time it was for said nieces. That's the point, I guess; the inflections were priceless.

When you say "wa-lah" or "wah-lah!", do you mean "voila"?

Plus, you need a comma: e.g., "Even if the material is considered safe, (COMMA), it is still not good eats (SIC). Hope your "Inner-English teacher" is well.

"Good eats." So if Alton Brown says it, and you write it (rip it off), it's all good. Wa-lah, there's some BAD grammar, folks! Say it again! (The emphasis is on the "-ah" for effect), as my little nieces say: Wah-lah! Good eats! Yay for bad grammar and hypocrites!

I would call the manufacturer and describe the issue. It could be they'd send a replacement at no charge. It's worth a try at least.

It's important to know exactly what type of material the pot is made of. Since you still havve the crockpot, go to the web site and verify exactly what type of material your crockpot (inner pot, I assume) is from.

  • Earthenware, for example, cannot be used if the glaze is cracked/crazed/peeling.
  • Stoneware, as I understand it, is harder and may be safe so long as the peeling glaze is not a problem--but you'll want to be sure.
  • Terra cotta I'm not that familiar with.

This web site can help with basic questions about ceramics, but you need the Support section of the firm that made your pot.

EDIT: This site gives more specifics about glazed stoneware.

EDIT #2: I have a Crockpot crockpot :-)). They say my liner is stoneware but a replacement only costs $15; if you bought it less than a year ago it's still covered by the warranty (if it's the same brand.)

You're wise not to use the pot until you're sure.

I like Nance's suggestion to look into a replacement.

The other thing to consider is that crockpots are relatively inexpensive. If you're concerned about safety, you might feel better just dropping another thirty bucks and replacing it. Good time for it, too -- holiday sales are in full-swing. (I swear I see these every so often at Wal(gag)mart for under $20. Treat yourself!

On a side note -- I bought one about a year ago, and now wish I'd've gotten a larger version. But mine's not peeling, so I'll keep it until it begins smoking when I turn it on. B/c I'm crazy that way, and still think anything I buy should last forever.

I wouldn't use any cookware that is peeling. Even if the material is considered safe it's still not good eats.
